A PERUVIAN CLASSIC
Originating in Peru, the South American dish, ceviche is also called cebiche, sebiche, or seviche. It’s made with fresh raw fish cured in citrus, usually lime or lemon juice. It’s usually seasoned with chili, onions, salt, coriander, aji, and other seasonings. The fish used for ceviche must be fresh, and the dish must be eaten immediately upon making to avoid food poisoning.
